Obligation of Good News

Romans 1:14-16

Be Responsible!

We have an obligation to God.

Matthew 28:18-20

 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Acts 1:8

but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and evento the remotest part of the earth.”

Romans 14:12

 So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.

II Corinthians 5:10

 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for [his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

We have an obligation to our fellow man.

Matthew 28:19-20

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that Icommanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Acts 1:8

but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and evento the remotest part of the earth.”

Be Ready!

Be Prepared!

I Peter 3:15

but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;

Be Enthusiastically Prepared!

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

Romans 5:6

For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.

Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

I Timothy 2:3-4

This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

 

II Peter 3:9

The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

I John 4:10

 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Be Relentless!

Stand up for the Gospel!

Luke 12:4-5

“I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him!

Contend for the Gospel!

Jude 3

Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.
